The Course

CHANGE THE WAY YOU DIVE "FOREVER"

Once you try it, you may never dive with a tank on your back again!

 

The PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty Course teaches you how to configure and use one or two cylinders mounted at your sides instead of on your back.

Experience a different way to streamline in the water, reduce lower back strain and take advantage of the increased gas supply for longer dives.

Sidemount diving is configuring the diver’s cylinders under the diver’s arms, rather than on the back. This configuration is well suited to a lot of different environments and implies excellent advantages for divers with limited mobility that prefer sidemount over wearing back mounted cylinders. 

 

Benefits of sidemount diving:

Adjustability: enhance your streamlining and body position while better controlling environmental contact.

Access: easy access to the regulator first stage(s) and tank valve(s) which are positioned in front of you instead of behind you.

Back relief: by mounting cylinder(s) on their sides.

Maximize time: a comfortable option to increase air supply and maximize bottom time; especially when using enriched air "nitrox".

Redundant gas supply and delivery system: handle a low or out-of-gas problem by switching to the second cylinder; handle a regulator failure by switching to the second regulator.

Dear Sirs,
I would be interested in taking your sidemount course, while travelling to Qatar on 11-14 November . Would it be possible to take such course with you on those dates?
I am an experienced diver with approx. 200 logged dives (recreational + technical) - I want to try out the new technique.

Best regards

Piotr
